What is Harvest?

In 2019 Edmond’s First focused on four fields connecting with the community and touching the lives of people through new ministries.

  • Open Fields: Serving those who have needs in mercy, compassion, and evangelism.
  • Plant Seeds: The Gospel is the seed and we go where the greatest needs are and begin to plant seeds of compassion, mercy, love, and gospel witness.
  • Seeds Grow: As the seeds begin to grow in a fertile field, the seeds begin to sprout and grow.
  • The Harvest: We bundle up where we are ministering and accomplishing this mission through our Connection Groups.

Jeremy Freeman

Jeremy became a Christian when he was 16 years old and God called him into full time ministry when he was 17. He attended Oklahoma Baptist University and graduated with a Master of Arts in Religion in May of 1999. After college, he took his first full time ministry position in Rogers, Arkansas.

Jeremy enjoys reading; playing and watching sports; spending time with my family; and studying/preaching God’s Word. His favorite Scripture verse is 2 Corinthians 4:18, which says, “So we fix our eyes, not on what we can see, but on what we cannot see; for what is seen is temporary and what is unseen is eternal.” May we always live for the eternal things…things that truly matter!

Caleb Freeman

Harvest Guest Speaker      #butGod
On Wednesday, hear how Caleb's faith got him through his accident and recovery.

"On December 19, 2017, two brothers enthusiastically were on their way to a University of Oklahoma basketball game. It was only one week before Christmas when rain covered the road causing many accidents; and, the vehicle hydroplaned placing the boys into a deadly spin. When the truck finally came to a stop in the middle of the interstate, an eighteen-wheeler was unable to keep from broad-siding the driver’s side where Caleb Freeman was instantly crushed and Clayton, his younger brother, was wounded.

"On this fateful day, Caleb’s life would hang in the balance with less than a 5% chance of survival. Word spread immediately on television networks and in social media as people prayed and God began to intervene. Jeremy Freeman, the pastor of First Baptist Newcastle, Oklahoma, and his wife Emily, had faced the worst kind of loss in losing a child previously. They were now thrust into an enduring struggle for life, once again, with their oldest son.  Clayton was released; but, Caleb’s brain stem injury was more traumatic due to the swelling.

"Prayers are still being offered for Caleb to speak clearly, to walk unencumbered and even with a desire to run."
